Create a dword, 'NoDispCPL' and set the value to 1

in the following folder in regedit:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

I think you can still run desk.cpl if you use the above.
You can use group poliy "gpedit"

Within this you can set that you want to lock setting and hide tabs within .cpl files.
This can also be controlled by a central server.

You get an administrator disabled message by adding the dword into the registry

However, you can also use gpedit as per myhc comments
